The Week of September 29, 2014

I hope you are enjoying your long weekend!  I'm also having fun planning some activities for the upcoming week.

In math this week and will be taking a closer look at graphing ratios.  Check out this great video from www.learnzillion.com that tells you how to do it.


We will have plenty of practice in class to help you understand how to graph the ratios on a coordinate plane.  You will also have homework Monday and Tuesday night to complete.  On Thursday, you will have a quiz based on what we've practiced in class and on your homework.  You may want to complete you Compass Learning assignment before you quiz, even though it is not due until Friday.  The extra practice could really help you when preparing for the quiz.

We've spent a lot of time last week talking about how to write a good math journal entry.  Please use that knowledge as you complete your daily math journal assignments.  Your journal will be due Thursday for me to check.

In science, get ready to move and shake as we will be talking about plate tectonics!  Check out the following visuals that will go with my lesson I will give on Monday.


As we discuss plate tectonics over the next two weeks, please complete the following choice sheet to help guide your studies.


You will also have a vocabulary quiz Friday, October 3rd and a final test on plate tectonics Friday, October 10.  These will be your LAST grades in science for the first term, so please try your best.  Here is a copy of your vocabulary words and a study guide to help you prepare of the test.


Looking at our class calendar, you can see that we also have a dress down day this Friday.  Just bring in $1.00 to participate.  All of the proceeds will go towards the "Pink Out" Champagne for breast cancer research.  

Finally, first term parent/teacher conferences will be coming up in two weeks.  If you haven't done so already, please click on the "Signup Genius" button located at the top-right corner of this page and choose a time to meet Ms. Carol and myself for a conference.

Let's have another great week together,
Mr. Trent
